americans are craving something new and different and the new energy and the commitment that will come with reform could i think that is why we need to send the maverick from the senate and put him in the white house and that is why i am happy to join him there. >> i will come back throughout the evening. this next question, the subprime lending meltdown, who do you think's is at fault? i start with you, governor palin could was it the risky home buyers who should not have been buying a home in the first place? was it thursday lenders? >> darn right it was the predator lenders who tried to talk americans into thinking that it was smart to buy a $300,000 house when you could only afford $100,000 house. there was deception and greed and there is corruption on wall street. and we need to stop that. again, john mccain and i, the commitment we have made and we will follow through on that, getting rid of that corruption and. let's commit ourselves, just everyday american people, joe six pack, hockey mom across the nation, i think you need to band together and say never again. never will be -
thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm running for a second term. that's what we need. now, my opponent has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got -- got an extreme makeover. [applause] but the bottom line is his underlying philosophy is the top-down economics that we've seen before. he thinks that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that yes, skewed toward the wealthiest, if we get rid of more regulations on wall street, then our problems will be solved. jobs and prosperity will rain down from the sky. the deficits will magically disappear. we will live happily ever after. [laughter] even though he's been proposing this plan for months now, he's had a little trouble explaining just how it would work without blowing a hole in the defici
not know mitt romney views on energy. i think independent energy is a great idea. >> this is weighing in alexandria virginia on the republican line. >> i listened to the debate and the president mentioned the number one job of the government is to protect the people. now he is the executive chief commander. that is his no. 1 job in his branch of the government. he did talk about strengthening our military -- he did not mention anything about strengthening the military which mitt romney did mention that he was going to keep the government strong. my biggest issue is the economy right now, but also if you look at the middle east crisis, iran, libya, and some of these other countries, if war breaks out in the middle east, and with the oil problem and fuel shortages, if you think our grocery stores can get into when there is two or 3 inches of snow coming down, imagine getting our oil cut off, and this crisis with our american embassies being under attack. >> so when it comes to the economy, which was the discussion tonight, it did get anything from either of the candidates about what the
have to invest in education and training. it is important to develop new sources of energy here in america. it will be up to the voters what path we should take. will we double down on the top- down economic policies that helped get us into this mess or embrace a new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best? i look forward to having that debate. >> it is in honor to be here with you. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most romantic place you could imagine, here with me. congratulations. this is a tender topic. i have met people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman said, "i have been out of work since may. can you help me?" yesterday was a rally in denver. a woman with a baby said, "my husband has had four jobs in three years -- part-time jobs. he lost his recent job." we lost our home. can you help us?" yes, we can. it will take a different path, not the one we have been on. not the one the president describes as a top-down tax
of fuel. and i've supported that very strongly. the department of energy is one that has cut back substantially on the study of those alternative sources of fuels. we can use other things that'll help the farmer. we can convert corn to ethanol, and i would push for that very strong. so absolutely. i'll do those things that are necessary to put the environment of our country number one. because if we don't protect that, we'll destroy the future of our children. and we must be committed to trying to clean up the water, clean up the air, and do everything we can, not only from a research standpoint, but also in the applied legislation to see that that's carried out. >> senator quayle? >> vice president george bush has said that he will take on the environmental problem. he has said further that he will deal with the acid rain legislation and reduce millions of tons of the s02 content. get legislation won't through the congress this year. but it will get through in a george bush administration, a george bush administration that is committed to the environment. now the greenhouse effec
not american energy independent to create 4 million jobs. open up trade in latin america. crackdown in china if they cheat. make sure people have the skills to succeed in the best schools in the world. give us to a balanced budget. champion small business. it is small business that creates jobs in america. over the last four years, small business people decided america may not be the place to open a new business because a new business start-ups are down to a 30-year low. i know what it takes to hire people. i am concern that the path we are on is unsuccessful. the president has a view very similar to what he had four years ago that a bigger government spending more, taxing more. trickle-down government would work. that is not the right answer for america. i will restore the vitality that it america working again. >> please respond directly to the trickle-down approach. >> let me talk about what i think we need to do. we have to improve our education system. we have made enormous progress drawing on ideas from democrats and republicans. they are starting to show gains in some of the toughest
229,600 plant between 1942 and 1944, we can build and install enough renewable energy to provide our country's needs to reconsider the rebuild our light rail, and solid buildings, plan buffer zones to protect our rivers and streams, provide health and education social services for our population and create the means for farms and small businesses to prosper. do not believe for one minute when they say we cannot afford it. one wall street wanted a bailout, congress and the fed bail them out with trillions. while working people struggle to get by, more than 90% of income -- >> time. the next opening statement will be from bill enyart. >> i want to thank robert waller for hosting this event. i would like to take a few moments to tell you about me. i have lived and raised my family and paid taxes in the district for more than 40 years. i am the son of a factory worker and spent 35 years in uniform protecting our great nation in the state of illinois. i could never attended college with the gi bill and student loans. there are serious policy differences between my opponents and me. i hope
to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united states. that we take some of the money we are saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america, and that we reduce our deficit in a way that makes us ablet -- that makes it able for us to create critical investments. it is up to you. are we going to go from the top down, which is what got us into this mess, or do we embrace the new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney. >> thank you, jim. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. appreciate the university of denver and their welcome. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most dramatic place you could imagine, here with me. so congratulations. [laughter] this is a tender topic. i have had the occasion over the last several years meeting people across the country. i was in ohio and a woman grabbed my arm, and she said, i have been
to control more of our own energy did that is the second part of our plan. after 30 years of doing nothing, we raised fuel standards so that by the middle of next decade, your cars and trucks will go prices far on a gallon of gas. as far on a gallon of gas. [applause] that will save you money and will be good for our economy and is good for national security and it is good for our environment. [applause] we doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar here in nevada and all across the country. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and solar panels and long-lasting batteries. today the united states of america is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have got a choice. we can reverse this progress like governor romney wants to do, or we can build on it. unlike my opponent, i am not going to let the oil companies write our energy plan. i'm not going to let oil companies collect corporate welfare from our taxpayers. we have a better plan where we invest in wind and solar and farmers and scientists
back to medicaid. >> let's go through them one by one. the department of energy has said the tax break for all companies is $2.2 billion per year. in one year, you provided $90 billion in breaks to the green energy world. i like green energy. that is about 50 years' worth of what oil and gas. receives. this $2.8 billion goes to smaller companies. if we get that tax rate down to 2%, that money is on the table. do not forget -- you put $90 billion into solar and wind solyndra and tesla. as my friend would say -- you know how to pick the losers. this is not the kind of policy you want to have to get american energy secure. you said you get a deduction for taking plant overseas. i have been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you are talking about. the idea you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is not the case. i would like to take the medicaid dollars to go to state and tell them they will get what they got last year plus inflation plus 1%. you will manage to care for the poor in the way you think best. as a governor, when this idea was floated by tommy thompson, the govern
will continue with the fisher plan because the fisher plan is going to reduce energy costs. we are lucky to have public power in this state, and we will get energy costs reduced. that helps businesses to grow. the fisher plan is going to allow for free and fair trade where you have an administration hopefully that will get those trade agreements to congress and get them signed so that our economy can grow. we have done it in nebraska. we have grown jobs here in the state of nebraska and provided property tax relief. those are specifics, not slogans of the fisher plan. i haven't heard that from the kerrey plan. >> thank you. this is the nebraska senate debate. a reminder to give us your thoughts on the debate on twitter. tonight we are putting questions to republican deb fisher and democrat bob kerrey. the next two questions will come from the candidates themselves. they will each ask one question of the other. we will begin with senator fisher asking senator kerrey a question. >> mr. kerrey, you talk about cutting spending. you talk about but partisanship. -- bipartisanship. yet when you were in
infrastructure. roads, railroads, third, we have the world's most immigration policy. so we get the most energy etic and talented im-- energetic and talented immigration. fourth, we have the best rules. lastly, we have the most government-funded research. we push the balance on science and technology, so our best innovators are here. in education, we now, well, roughly 30% of high school students drop out of high school. we used to ld the world in college graduates. we no longer do that. on infrastructure, according to the american society of civil engineers, we are now $2 trillion in deficits in terms of infrastructure. a great education, and get the hell out of our country. we are fighting on each one of these issues that are so vital to our greatest strength. i don't think we can remedy this . and on budget-funded research, it looks wike an e.k.g. heading for a heart attack. in terms of the things that have historically made us great on each one of those indices, i see us not going in the direction we should be going. for me that's the alarm bell and the wake-up call. >> are we as strong as
to choose. if i have the honor of being your senator, i will give all my energy to working with both parties and getting america us sending once again. >> let's follow immediately on these opening statements here. your campaign has basically said that you will go to washington, work across party lines, and fix that toxic political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will a
million new jobs. my energy independence policy means 3 million new jobs. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and small business creates 7 million more. expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. that is the candidates and their plan for creating jobs, particularly in manufacturing. eric morath is an economy reporter for "the wall street journal." chris savage is back of the table -- nice to see you, mr. savage. how much leverage does the president have in creating jobs in the manufacturing sector? guest: it is difficult for them to directly see these numbers go up and down. we have seen the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest man
are dealing with a surge in global energy, food, and commodity prices, and a banking collapse more than four years on, is blocking the arteries of our economic system. the idea it is -- if the government regulates it more, or borrows and spends more, we would achieve long and lasting growth is not credible. if you're being attacked by liam fox by one side and edwin on the other, you're in the right place. [applause] what we need is a plan that is tough enough to keep the bond markets off our back. that is loudest -- allowed us to and ar psendin spending cuts plan that will see public ofnding account for 42 % gdp, higher than any point between 1995 and 2008 when the banks collapsed. and because it has the confidence of the market, we have room to create a business bank and an 80 billion pound funding for lending, the biggest of its kind anywhere in the world. so much of this is about perception. is how muchtell you they have to legistlate for. let's not let the charicature go unchallenged. if it was as dogmatic as the critics claim, i'd demand a plan b. you were right. overwhelming rejecting
are empowering our workforce for the jobs that are available. lastly, it develops a comprehensive energy plan so we can put people back to work while we are protecting our economy and being an energy independent. i spend time developing my plan. you have no plan. i think the people of connecticut want to know what we're going to do for them. >> mr. murphy, you have 30 seconds. >> linda mcmahon should stop spreading these stories. it's not ok to make up these stories when you're running for the senate. my work is based in the work of debt and public service and focusing tax cuts on the middle- class, not by focusing tax cuts on the affluent and rich. my focus is on rebuilding the education system, not divesting from funding the most important services to our states. they're big differences in are planted as we should be talking about. >> is the public being well served by the quality and nature of this campaign? we are here today in a formal debate and youtube are probably going to answer around a dozen questions, but both of you have failed a basic standard of transparency and access in this cam
energy, food and commodity prices. an existential crisis in the eurozone. and a banking collapse which, more than four years on, is still blocking the arteries of our entire economic system. ranged against these forces, the idea that if government just deregulated a bit more as liam fox proposes, or borrowed and spent a bit more as ed balls proposes, we would, at a stroke, achieve strong and lasting growth, is just not credible. in my experience, if you're being attacked by liam fox from one side, and ed balls from the other, you're in the right place. [applause] you see, what is needed -- and what we're delivering -- is a plan that is tough enough to keep the bond markets off our backs, yet flexible enough to support demand. a plan that allowed us, when the forecast worsened last year, to reject calls for further spending cuts or tax rises and balance the budget over a longer timescale. a plan that, even at the end of this parliament, will see public spending account for 42 per cent of gdp -- higher than at any point between 1995 and 2008 when the banks collapsed. and a plan that, bec
in congress and as a result we have not been able to get much done. my energy policy involves making sure [inaudible] short term, long term, medium- term growth for energy. i just want to make sure everybody knows i will be a consistent champion for wind and virtual field in this district and congressman king has not been. [applause] >> congressman king, your response? >> i happen to be the american went it industry champion designated by the wind energy association. [applause] i've supported by the renewable fuels industry across the board, so far as i know. we are the number one renewable energy producing district in all of america. when you add the other counties going east to make this new district, we will easily be the number one renewable energy producing district and i have been part of that. i am proud of what has been accomplished by your investment in your risk. let's keep that up. [applause] >> the next question comes from our panel at northwestern college. >> [inaudible] according to the state data center of iowa, latina's make up 5.2% of the state's population. four counties
energy cuts. -- costs. my plan will allow for free trade when you have administration that will get this trade agreements to congress and signed sow our economy can grow. we have done it in nebraska, we have provided property tax relief. those are specifics, not slogans. i have not heard that from his plan. >> this has been the nebraska u.s. senate debate. i am dennis kellogg. a reminder to give us your thoughts on the debate on twitter and facebook. tonight we put questions to deb fischer and bob kerrey. they will each ask one question of the other, and we will begin with senator fischer. >> you talk about cutting spending, you talk about bipartisanship, yet when you were in the united states senate, when the welfare reform bill came up, he fought against it. that was a bipartisan bill, put forward by president clinton. i liked the bill. john kerry and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. vote againstp cutting spending, requiring people to work for their checks, and against that landmark legislation? >> i did not boast against -- i did not vote
of competition that there was in the privatized utility industry, gas, energy, and water. what does that tell you about these tories? what does that tell you about the way they don't understand the values of the nhs? the nhs isn't like the gas, electricity, and water industries. the nhs is the pride of britain. the nhs is based on a whole different set of values for our country. friends, it just shows that the old adage is truer now than it ever was -- you just can't trust the tories on the nhs. [applause] so let me be clear, let me be clear, the next labour government will end the free market experiment, it will put the right principles back at the heart of the nhs and it will repeal the nhs bill. [applause] so friends, this is where i stand. this is who i am. this is what i believe. this is my faith. you know, i was talking to my mum this morning, as you do before a big speech, and she reminded me her mother was born in a small polish village in 1909. i went back to that village with my mum about a decade ago. about 2,000 people live there and it's quite an event having people from england comi
was very excited at the job that he did. usually, he comes off with not a lot of energy and has not been attacking obama very much. but during this debate, he came in from the very beginning. he was energetic. i thought he connected well as he answered the questions. i was very excited. he gave his proposals. this is one of the best jobs i have seen him do since he won the nomination appeared >> do you think it was enough to be a game changer for this campaign? >> what i think happened is, for once, he no longer let them define who he is. i think he has let the democrats and the media define who he was as far as tax rates, lowering taxes for the rich, and not looking for the middle-income and lower-income people. and for once, he was able to articulate exactly who he was and that those were not his programs that were being mentioned by the media and by the president. i do think that it helps him especially with independence to find out who he really is. at this point, they need to see who he is. >> when we met you at the convention, you had originally been a supporter of ron paul. i wond
energy. on climate change. we were ahead. immigration -- with charlie on health care. by the way, john and i came to the congress, said the same time. we worked on navajo issues and creating a federal boxing commission and native american issues with tom daschle. i think this is a good issue -- panel. the states, there are laboratories ofbi partisanship -- bi partisanship that the government can learn from. maybe this institute can figure that out. >> pick up on that. it is true. governors are practical, they have to do that, but you ought to have the national governors' association where you do seem to come together more -- you also have the national governors' association, reducing to come together more. >> when you give responsibility as an executive, i say this, having served 12 years in congress and having the great opportunity to serve as governor for six years, nine months, and five days. [laughter] as bill pointed out, i really think that at the end of the day, i read the mission statement for the institute -- governor schwarzenegger talked about health care and energy and the
, respond to what she said. >> regarding oil, if anybody thinks by raising taxes on energy producers will not be passed on, they will pass all of those off to our motorists and homeowners and everybody knows that. if you want to have a comprehensive discussion about energy, we should have it, a true all of the above approach. she is against the keystone pipeline. she is also against -- in favor of wind and solar, but we need more of an approach in that. let me talk about the buffet rule as well. the buffett rule, it funds the government for a day. more importantly, we have our own buffett rule in massachusetts. when she has been talking about everybody paying higher taxes, she had a choice to pay higher taxes herself, and she chose not to do that. number three, all of her criticisms on me is i do not want to raise taxes. that is correct. i do not want to raise taxes on any american in the middle of recession. when i go to businesses, they do not say take all my money and bring it to washington. they say we have been taxed and regulated enough, and the only person here who is a fiscal
has five basic parts. get as energy independent. that creates 4 million jobs. open up more trade, particularly in latin america. crackdown on china when they cheat. make sure our people have the skills to succeed, and the best schools in the world. yet as to a balanced budget. champion small business. it is small business that creates jobs in america. over the last four years they have decided america might not be the place to open new business. i know what it takes to get small business going again and to hire people. i am concerned the path we are on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view similar to what he had four years ago. a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, trickle-down government would work. host: facebook.com/span. what were the highs and lows of the debate is what we had on our facebook page. we're trying to read as many of those as possible. here is the front page of "the news york times." gil from pensacola, florida on our others line. caller: as a debate, i think that mitt romney did very well. this is a about a campaign. the qu
care system that is broken, energy policies that are not working, because 10 days ago, john said they are sound. >> say to him? [laughter] >> are you afraid i would not hear him? >> i am trying to get you to talk to each other. >> unless we are holding ourselves accountable day in and day out, not just where there is a crisis for folks who have power and influence and to hire lobbyists, but for the nurse, the teacher, the police officer who, at the end of each month, they have a financial crisis going on. they will have to take out extra debt to make their mortgage payments. we have not been paying attention to them. >> professor alan schroeder, your take away. >> in 2008, the campaigns negotiated an agreement that allowed them to talk to each other. they did not want to do it. you see jim is trying to pull teeth to get them to talk to each other. i do a lot of research on televised campaigns around the world. the candidates spent the entire debate talking to each other in past debates. it is like a tennis or ping-pong game. the moderator's get out of the way and have a very litt
. they are disgusted. they are disgusted with that lack of progress on a long list of growing problems, energy problems, environmental problems. our health-care system, our tax system. our regulatory policies. washington has taken another five-week vacation. it took a five-week vacation in august, worked two weeks, taking another five-week vacation. if these people did a better job, they would not have to take some much time off to campaign, raising money, because if they did a good job, people will reward you. when you do not do a good job, you have to spend a lot more time doing that. >> de you think we would be better off with a parliamentary system, where one party to control things for a time, and we did not have to deal with a republican house, a senate of democrats, so we are always at this gridlock? we kind of let the supreme court make the decision because the politicians cannot do it. >> we need to work at bath, but i have no idea how, because as you know, that is the way it is. it is human nature to maintain the status quo until the things get terrible. then people get flexible. that is the
. number one, we will take advantage of our energy, coal, gas, oil, nuclear. the president has cut in half the number of permits and licenses on federal lands and in federal waters. i will double them. the president has made it virtually impossible to build a coal industry in this country. we have a lot of coal and i want to use it. the want thet w keystone pipeline. i will get us that oil from canada. i will open up more trade. we can trade on a fair basis with people around the world. but when people steal our jobs and trade practices as a china has, i will hold them accountable. we cannot let our jobs get stolen unfairly. i want to make sure the people have the skills that they need to succeed. i want training programs that prepare people for the jobs of today. right now have 47 different federal training programs reporting to eight different agencies. think of the overhead and the bureaucracy and waste. i want to take of that money and give virginia its fair share and say, you create the training programs that work for your people. that the federal government out of it. [cheers and app
iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. [applause] red lines do not lead to war. they prevent war. look at nato's charter. it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. red lines have helped keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century. and help preserve the peace for decades. it is the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression. if it were drawn in the 1930's, world war ii might have been avoided. the first gulf war might have been avoided. clear, red lines will also work with iran. earlier this year, they threatened to close the strait. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and for
energy products. even as far back as the iranian hostage crisis, everyone, right, left, center, up and down, everyone realized that oil in the middle east was a national- security problem. host: we will go to clinton, md., on the democratic line. caller: the thing i would like for mr. romney to do is tell the truth, tell us what he really thinks about the policies of the united states, and not say one thing today and change it tomorrow. mr. oliver north, i want people to know that he was a colonel in the marine corps who instigated the iran contra war. he lost the war there in direct opposition to what congress had said we were supposed to do. drugs in this country support the war because congress would not approve the money. we have a big lie. this is how romney is going after this election, they cannot win any other way. the american people have to wake up and realize this man is -- this man is a liar. host: chris from alabama rights in -- -- writes in. host: we want to show you more from the speech. mitt romney will say -- host: we have a couple of minutes left on this first seg
with this energy going around. as people start -- you have this high energy, which can be intoxicating but on the other hand. it can hand. we don't have institutional history it together to guide us. we don't have the parameters you might have in the normal workplace. we are the workplace without boundaries. we had a manual we could give people that was about five pages, an employee manual. i don't even know what we could have put in it. it might of been, you can get your health insurance benefits and here's where the restroom is. nothing to tell people. so you have this energetic group of people and they are competitive. maybe even a little ambitious. you come into this environment, many people came in without a job. there were just volunteers and want to get a job. some people came because they wanted to get noticed by the right people. yes, people who had been hired who want more responsibility than in their other jobs. and department heads trying to get more budget than the other department. so you have this thing going on where it's a very chaotic time. you really need to get cont
, they have the right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy within the framework of the bt. and with the commitment by all of these countries provided the necessary steps with the countries of the region so as to remove any suspicion around a peaceful intentions of these programs. mr. president, the conflict of justice, truth and dignity, encompassed in our view the frameworks of government and international relations. there is no debt that in this view of international relations, undoubtedly, in justice has been inflicted on the african continent. i do not think i need to go through the previous commitments made in this hall to both the development and economic growth of africa through aid and investment. the world has a responsibility to support africa's efforts. through providing assistance needed to restore the treasures of african countries taken over consecutive eras, the last of which was under the thought that supporting an unjust regimes would assist in achieving a fake stability to achieve a fake justice, while these regimes were spreading corruption and smuggling
down the cost of fuel and energy and gas prices. in our restaurants, they have to pay more for food than the deliveries. we have to bring down these costs and make our small businesses viable. >> limit tell you how this recession has affected me -- i have fought even harder for the people i represent. i committed my life to public service because i saw my neighbors out of work. i saw my family being denied health care. when this recession hit, i turned up the volume on fighting for connecticut manufacturers. i founded the buy america caucus, dedicated to making sure our tax dollars stay in the united states. i stepped up the volume when it came to making sure the social safety net was there for the people of this state who were out of work, whether it's a unemployment benefits for health care for them and their kids. i fought even harder in the public arena for people who needed help. how did this recession affect linda mcmahon? in 2009, her company took $10 million in state tax credit designed to create jobs. at the same time, she laid off 10% of the workforce and made $46 million
to engage, having areas of cooperation in energy, the development of a massive nuclear civil energy programs. we are already cooperating with the chinese. keep our markets open. but do not create a more hostile environment that is essential. is is important we keep a balance in the region. there is a line between balancing provocation and we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> i was surprised to hear you say that the comments made by both candidates, you used the term deplorable. i know you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? abbey said i find your comments deplorable? -- have you said i find your comments deplorable? [laughter] >> i see these advertisements for the candidates are debating with each other on how to deal with the cheating of china. both used the word cheat. it may be that in china they do not understand and i am bothered by the fact that appealing to china -- it does not affect my feeling of the canada. >> mitt romney has also talked about labelling china as a currency manipulator. would that be productive? i
york city. energy is on the mind of this twitter viewer. he would like to ask, with the candidate support chemical disclosure of hydraulic fracturing fluids? our next caller is a democrat from massachusetts. hello. you are on. caller: hello. i'd like to ask both of mount why the fda has kept drugs on the market? >> thank you. he is interested in drugs and drug pricing. daniel, you are on as a republican. what city are you calling from? >> i am calling from nevada. >> what would you ask if you could? caller: i would ask both of them about the real truth about the health care plan and then saying that it will not costs the american people anything. it will cause in the american people ought to 45%. i want them to answer that question how it will not affect the middle class when it actually will. >> thank you for your call and your question. you can see the audion -- auditorium is quite full. it seats normally about 7000. you can see lots of activity with people as they get to those coveted places that they have it tonight. next up is the president of the university of denver. he doe
supported that very strongly. the department of energy is one that has cut back substantially on the study of those alternative sources of fuels. we can convert corn to ethanol could i would push for that very strongly. so absolutely, i will do those things that are necessary to help the environment of our country be number one. if we don't protect that, we will destroy the future of our children. and we must be committed to try to clean up the water, clean up the air and do everything we can not only from a research standpoint, but also in the applied legislation to see that that is carried out. >> senator quayle. >> vice-president george bush has said he will take on the environmental problem. he said further that he will deal with the acid rain legislation. that legislation will get through the congress this year. but it will get through in a george bush administration. a georgia administration that is committed to the environment -- a george bush administration that is committed to the environment and. it is unfortunate for us to get the data in -- it is important for us to get the dat
spending, and powering our work force for training for jobs available and developing a comprehensive energy policy to put our people back to work, energy independence to protect our environment. >> 30 seconds to rebut. >> you have been running some of the most deceitful attack at the state has ever seen. don't try to pretend that has not been what's happening in that race. when your campaign was asked why you don't start talking about the issues, your campaign manager said it would be a senseless exercise. that's right. for linda mcmahon talking at the issues of be a senseless exercise. the only ads she can run are against me and my family. my path is different. that's what in the final four weeks my campaign will be about. >> it's time now with our closing statements. we begin with mrs. mcmahon. i want -- >> i want to thank you once again. voters in connecticut will have a clear choice in november. a clear choice between a job creator has a plan to create millions of jobs and someone has never created job and does not plan to do that. someone who will raise taxes on the middle class, has v
and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and long- lasting batteries. the united states today is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have a choice between a plan that reverses this progress or one that builds on it. my opponent said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in tax subsidies every year. we have a better plan that we keep investing in wind, solar, and clean coal, where construction workers are retrofitting homes so they waste less energy, and we can develop a supply of natural gas that creates hundreds of thousands of jobs and we can cut our oil imports in half by 2020. that will be good for our economy, for colorado, and that will be good for america, and that is wh
atomic energy agency, a nonproliferation treaty. we've dealt with iran differently than we have iraq partly because iran has not yet as iraq did violated 12 years of resolutions by the u.n. security council. we're working with the brits and the germans and the french, who have been negotiating with the iranians. we've recently were actively involved in leading the board of governors in the atomic energy agency and a followup in november to determine whether or not iran is living up to their commit ms and obligations. if they aren't, my guess is it will be sent to the u.n. security council for the application of international sanctions, which i think would be exactly the right way to go. we're addressing north korea on a similar basis, working with the chinese, the south koreans, the japanese and others to bring them around. one of the great byproducts of what we did in iraq and afghanistan is five days after we captured saddam hussein moammar qaddafi came forward and announced he would surrender all his nuclear materials to the united states, which he has done. this was one of the bi
generations. i think there needs to be some balance. i think it is shameful the amount of energy we spend on the past, i am including myself. host: are you a senior citizen? caller: short. but we do not need to spend $200,000 on the last month of care for an elderly person and more about grandchildren. they say it, but they will not vote that way. i support medicare reform today, not 10 years from now. host: the washington post profile. it says, what has happened to him now economically is the wins are coming much less it goes on to talk about other motivational techniques that he tried to get things rolling for his business. we are asking you whether you think the american dream has downsized. i just read an excerpt from the washington post profiling a virginia man. it says "selling success when the american dream is downsized ." let's listen to a caller from florida. is this russell? are you with us? caller: i just wanted to say, there has been a lot of talking about downsizing small businesses. the reality is, there is no choice in the matter. the way the money is being spent, everywhe
it was all about the way they came out and the energy they had or if what they were saying had as big an effect as the perception of how they are doing and how excited they are to be there. >> the first observation is, clearly, the aarp has lowered its age. [laughter] it is a good thing that you identify yourself. image is important. the president heard himself with that last night. i do not think it romney side should think he will be like that in the next debate. they will look at that and say, that is not how we want to project. you go back to the tapes and break it down, romney had a lot of good, substantive points that he got across. from a policy standpoint, i thought it was pretty rich. when people were complaining that they got too deep into policy and too much in the woods, well, usually the complaint is that there is not enough substance and it is too much style. from that standpoint, i thought it was a pretty good debate for the american people. it one difference was that clearly, mitt romney came fired up and ready to go. and obama almost looked like george h. w. bush, che
of energy into that. why shouldn't they have the same energy and exposure side-by-side with you and mr. sadler as before the primary? >> we are debating here today. we will debate in a couple of weeks. in the meantime, i am on the road in a different city between just about every day between now and election day. >> but why can not we have another debate? why not the one in houston? what are you afraid of? >> i am focusing on supporting our campaign. that is what we're doing. i'm listening to the voters of campaign -- tx. >> you can build the support in a debate. >> we agree to this one. look -- i understand you are working very hard to get media coverage. it is not our obligation to help you in that. you can go convey your message to texas voters. i am conveying mine. >> is your obligation to face the voters of texas. >> i am doing that. >> as you said, state by tv, is the critical point. you have had the opportunity. even for the tea party debate, which she would not do. why what he faced me now? >> we are sitting here right now. you can launch every attack you want to right now, on
was wondering if you thought it was the way they came out and the energy that they had or if what they're saying has as big an effect as the perception of how they're doing and how excited they are to be there. >> well the first observation is clearly aarp is lowered because it's membership age. i think the body language is important and i think that the president hurt himself with that. i don't think that the romney side should think that he's going to be like that in the next debate. i think they'll look at that and think that's not what we wanted to project. but at the same time, you can go back to the tape and break it down like a football game, romney had a lot of good points that he got across and i thought from a policy standpoint, i thought it was pretty rich. when people are complaining that this got too much into policy and too deep in the woods, well usually the complaint is there's not enough substance, it's too style oriented. so i think from that standpoint, it was a pretty good debate for the american people to see a lot. the one difference i think was that clearly mitt romney cam
and the real energy he brought on the campaign trail in 2008 to the question of transparency and the good government we all in addition. from my perspective by about 2010 that energy had dissipated. a lot of efforts have gone toward a lot of things. we were not seeing that dramatic transformation that a lot of us can visualize. it was a lot happening very much. that caused me to do some work that i will describe here that result in some great that i will talk about. grading is a kroll art but sometimes a necessary arts. . i looked at the problem of lagging transparency efforts. a look like maybe the transparency community had communicated well enough to the government side what it was we wanted. i sat down with some technical people. i am a lawyer. i have to go back and learn about how these computers worked. i sat down with some data people to try to interpret in language that many policy-makers to understand what data people need. in the paper that most of you have on the chairs, publication practices for transparent government, i summarized those for practices that put the public in a
american energy in -- independence. and international affairs, governor romney will not apologize to our adversaries. he would champion peace through strength and protect our interests and ideals. how can we be sure he can get the job done? it is simple. he has a record. unlike president obama's reichert, mitt romney's record is a record of success. he started successful companies and state failing ones. he records the 20 -- 2002 olympics and it became a source of national pride. as governor, he balanced every budget, cut taxes, improved education, and reduced unemployment rate in the coming debates, the contras will grow sharper and the choice clear. if we want to do better, then the last four years, there is only one choice to make. that is governor mitt romney. thank you, god bless you and god bless america. >> americans are not the only people have is september 11 in the national stories. in santiago, chilly, there was a september 11 event that had a dramatic impact on chilean history and memory. on that day in 1973, military officers from the army and the unit's staged a full-scale
